Around the World in 80 Days - the Moral Values That I Have Learnt (Sample Answer)
Around the World in 80 DaysThe Moral Values that I Have Learnt
I have selected the novel entitled ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ written by Jules Verne in order to answer the question. The novel tells about a gentleman named Phileas Fogg who goes around the world in 80 days with his butler, Jean Passepartout as they embark on journey which is full of adventures and surprises.
The moral values that I have learnt from the novel are be organised, be brave and be persistent. The moral values are portrayed by the main character in the novel, Phileas Fogg. First and foremost, Phileas Fogg is an organized person who leads his life in a well organised way such as his shaving water must be of a certain degree and he eats his lunch every time in the Reform Club at his usual time. In addition to this, Phileas Fogg is a brave person when he decides to save Aouda. He has to risk his life and freedom to rescue Aouda but Phileas Fogg is willing to do whatever is within his reach to free her from her kidnappers. Last but not least, Phileas Fogg is a persistent person when he accepts a bet to travel around the world and he finally succeeds in his quest.
In conclusion, the moral values that I have learnt from the novel are be organised, be brave and be persistent. All the moral values have taught me to be a better person in my life.
